All batteries, even those using gel instead of electrolyte lose charging capacity as the time passes. The reason for this is that the chemical breakdown of the connections inevitably takes place leading to the deterioration of the plates and loss of the electrolyte. When your vehicle has start up or charging problems, the vehicle troubleshooting procedure should start with a test of the battery. You do that with a visual check followed by a voltage test. If the battery is ok, other components of the electrical system is probably the reason, but battery problems are by far the most likely reason.
In case you don't know who take your car to for auto electrical repairs, you can ask for references from fellow motorists; ideally friends and relatives who are unlikely to mislead you in this (potentially sensitive) matter. As long as they have faced such situations before, they are likely to guide you on which service providers to visit; or at least which service providers to avoid.
